    interesting photos in newsweek 12/27

    All,

    I've been meaning to post this for a while - in the 12/27 issue of Newsweek (not sure if it's the US edition, but I presume it is), there were some interesting photos from afghanistan and, I think, iraq. There were taken with what looks like a holga (or maybe woca). They are in my gallery linked below.

    While the images themselves, as holga/woca images, are kinda interesting, I am still trying to figure out why the photographer would have chosen to capture these images with such a camera. Seems odd. They aren't any more discreet, or durable, or any other trait that would make that much of a difference. Thoughts?

    were they taken by a staff photog or a local. Maybe that is all the only camera the photographer had. Let's face it they are cheap.

    I often borrow Audubon magazine from the library. Last year and the year before, there was a few issues with Color holga shots. Also, there was an issue in Nat. Geo where a guy was in some jungle following monkeys and most of the shots were from a Holga

    David Burnett, photojournalist, is well known to have taken up "alternative" equipment of late. I do not know if this is his work but, I would not be suprised. In anycase, it is refreshing to see. You can see more of his work at Contact Press and at David Burnett
